Calculate the sum of a measure

Hi,

 

I have a column of sales volumes with the rows being branch numbers.

 

I'd like to a calculated measure showing the "% weighting " versus the total. I know I can use "Show Value As -> % of Grand Total" but I'd like the result in a calculated measure that I can use elsewhere.

 

Please can you tell me how to calculate the sum of the volumes? (in order to allow me to calculate the % weighting)

 

Thanks,

 

CM

Re: Calculate the sum of a measure

for a measure (assuming it's sum of sales) syntax would look like this

% weighting all selected = 
VAR CurrentSales = [your measure]
VAR AllSelectedSales = CALCULATE([your measure],ALLSELECTED('Table'))
RETURN
DIVIDE(CurrentSales,AllSelectedSales)

without sample data & measure syntax from your side I cannot provide more specific info

Re: Calculate the sum of a measure


depending whether you need the weight to be as per overall total or currently selected you may select between the 2:

% weighting all selected = 
VAR CurrentSales = SUM('Table'[Sales Volume])
VAR AllSelectedSales = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Sales Volume]),ALLSELECTED('Table'))
RETURN
DIVIDE(CurrentSales,AllSelectedSales)
% weighting all= 
VAR CurrentSales = SUM('Table'[Sales Volume])
VAR AllSales = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Sales Volume]),ALL('Table'))
RETURN
DIVIDE(CurrentSales,AllSales)

Re: Calculate the sum of a measure

Is there a way to sum calculated measures? (I think you are summing calculated fields?)

 

Thanks
